                                                 MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Felice Anno Nuovo! I hope this newsletter finds all our members well and hope that all the members and their families had a
Holy and Merry Christmas. If you spend New Years Eve at the RIWA party or on the member’s side, I know you will have a
great time. I first would like to thank the Roma Lodge Christmas committee for all their time and effort to once again put on a
great party. A big thank you goes out to Dennis and Lisa Gehrke, Donna Alfano, Jason Evitts, Mom and Dad Evitts, Frank
Bisotti and Cindy Day for all their help. Also, a real big thank you to Zuddy DeRose for the ticket sales and cooking the
wonderful meal we had. All I can tell you is I’ve been asked many times by different organizations how does Roma Lodge do
it, and I tell them it is because it has great members. I would also like to give a big thank you to Rick Crivello and Jim
McDougal for another outstanding job, as always, on the Children’s Christmas Party and to all their elves. A special thanks to
Frank Mazzie, Jr. for his donation to the Children’s Party and to Santa (A.R.) for another great job with the children. We have
a great year of activities coming up, so get ready to enjoy 2011.
It’s your club, so let’s take care of it. It needs all our help. So remember, if it’s good for the Roma Lodge members, it’s good
for Roma Lodge! Fraternally Yours,
Buddy D. Alfano

             Non-Payment of Dues
According to the Roma Lodge By-laws, Article V, Section 6:
                                                                                st
Members who have failed to meet their financial obligation by January 31 will be dropped from the membership
roster.*

* Members that have special circumstances and who need additional time to pay their dues may contact the President, Vice-
president or Membership Secretary to make arrangements to pay late. However, in such cases, the member may not vote at
the March election of directors unless all dues have been paid before the election.
Note: This also includes sales or return of all Festival Raffle tickets.
Remember - If you are dropped from the membership roll for non-payment of dues, you will have to re-apply for
membership and go through a new application for membership process!!!!

Membership Authorizes Mortgage Payoff
At the December meeting, the membership overwhelmingly approved paying off the remainder of the mortgage loan owed by
Roma Lodge for the facility originally completed in 1987. With less that $90,000 due, the Board of Directors recommended
the payoff as a savings device. It will have no effect on the tax status of Roma Lodge. Congratulations to all the past and
current members who made this event possible through their hard work and dedication to the success of the Lodge. And a
special thanks to those members who almost twenty-five years ago had the vision, foresight, and courage to provide a facility
for the most successful ethnic fraternal organization in this area.

Party Planned to Celebrate Mortgage Burning
The Membership voted to hold a celebration on the occasion of the mortgage payoff. The party will be modeled after the
        th
2010 85 Anniversary Celebration. The event is scheduled for Saturday, August 27, 2011. Vice-president Dave Chiapete is
chairing the planning committee for the event. More details will be made available as the planning progresses. Those
members who wish to volunteer for this committee can contact him at 939-5914 or by email at davidchiapete@hotmail.com.



             Membership Approves Four of Five By-law Amendments
A change in term of office for the Past-president was one of the by-law changes approved by the Membership at the
December meeting. Article VI, Section 10 - Office of Past President now will give the past president a three month term with
additional service on the Board at the discretion of the current president. The Past President will no longer be required to
serve a full two year term. Also if the position of Past President becomes vacant it will remain so until a new president is
elected.
A second by-law change that was approved affects any current board member whose term is not to expire but who wishes to
run for a higher office. Article VII, Section1 – Nomination of Officers now requires the sitting Board member to resign his seat
on the Board to be filled by another Board candidate or by appointment.
The remaining two by-law changes were clarifications of existing practices. Article V: Section 6F – Membership Regulations
specifies the procedures a member must follow when voluntarily dropping membership in the Lodge but who may wish to
rejoin at a later date. Following the procedure would allow the dropped member to reapply and if approved, not have to
follow the probationary process. Article Ix: Section 7: Suspending the Rights of A Member specified what the suspension
status entails and the condition under which a member may be dropped from membership.
Defeated by the Membership was Article V: Section 8 – Death or Divorce of Spouse. Men who gain membership through
their wives’ Italian heritage will continue to be dropped immediately upon divorce. The status of widowed members who also
gained membership through marriage was not changed. They can continue as members until they remarry. They would be
eligible to remain as members if they marry another woman of Italian descent.
A full copy of the new By-laws will be available on the Roma Lodge Members web site at:
http://members.romalodge.com/rules_bylaws.html.


              Thanks for Two Great Christmas Parties

volunteers for the great Members Christmas Party on December 11 and to Rick Crivello and Jim McDougal and to all the
volunteers for the Children’s Christmas Party. And once again a special thanks to Art Rozzoni for making sure that Santa

                                         Letters to Santa from the Children at Roma Lodge
Mrs. Claus shared these comments that Santa received in the letters to Santa at the Breakfast With Santa and the Roma
Lodge Children’s Christmas Party events:

In her letter, Riley wrote, “tel Mr. Clas I sad Hiiii”, and at the bottom her P.S. read, “Tell the reindeer I will have a special treat
for them this year!”, and she added, specialy rudof”.

Tiff filled the letter from top to bottom and at the end she wrote, “thanks for your patience.”

From Tony, “I love. Christmas. I am. Being. Good. I. am. Wondering. What. I will get. For. Christmas. Thank. You. for. The.
Presents I got last year. How. Are. Your. Reindeer?

Max asked for a few things and then wrote, “my brother would like a teddy bear”.

Joey stated, “I want a shark so I can swim with him in my bath tub. I will leave some milk and cookies.

And finally, Lisa wrote, “Dear Santa, for Christmas I want a bike and to be taller and nicer”.
[Editor’s note: Our hope is that all their wishes, and your wishes along with them came true.]

                                       A Bit of History - From the Files of Roma Lodge
From the May 3, 1988 Minutes of the Joint Roma Lodge/RIWA Boards of Directors

A Facilities Planning Committee (FPC) was suggested consisting of two Roma Lodge and two RIWA Board members plus
several at-large members. The purpose of the FPC will be to work at on-going problems with the new building, litigation
concerning the building, the authorization of payments, and assisting the lawyers [handling pending law suits against
contractors]. It was decided that the FPC be headed by Neal Pacanella, Benny Yanzito, and Bill Binetti. The committee will
be strictly advisory, having no power, and reporting to both Boards. Ben suggested writing a charter and outlining duties.
The Committee will hold its first meeting Tuesday, May 17, 1988 at 8:00 pm.

Russ Missureli suggested that negativism by the membership must be stopped. Pete Ciaramita suggested that perhaps the
RIWA might discuss in general terms the problems at the next regular membership the Lodge is having.

Under miscellaneous items – the location of the dumpster was discussed. Illegal parking in the back lot is still a problem.
Respectfully submitted,
Bill Greco

                                Milestones In Italian American History
              1904 Amadeo P. Giannini Opens Banca d’Italia, Forerunner of Bank of America




Amadeo P. Giannini (1870-1949) holds a major place in the annals of America's banking industry. Born in 1870 in San Jose,
California, his parents were immigrants from Chavari, Genoa, Italy who ran a small boarding house. After the death of his
father, his mother married Lorenzo Scatena, a family friend who operated a small produce business that Amadeo joined.
Amadeo became a partner and soon was instrumental in building the venture into the largest produce-commission enterprise
on the Pacific Coast. Amadeo's marriage to Clorinda Cuneo introduced him to the world of banking, whereupon in 1904 he
established his own bank, the "Banca d'Italia," that flourished in the Italian section of San Francisco. He introduced a
"character loan," that is a loan not based on collateral, but on the word of hard-working, honest people. The "Banca d'Italia"
name gained further renown after the earthquake of 1906, in which Giannini demonstrated remarkable courage and decisive
action by personally rescuing depositors' money from destruction. He was furthermore an important factor in the rebuilding of
San Francisco. Not surprisingly his life and accomplishments were extensively celebrated within the Italian American
community. In 1909 he opened a small branch bank in San Jose that he soon followed with offices in various California cities,
thereby becoming a pioneer in branch banking. His other innovations included savings for school children and women's
banking. Giannini proceeded to open up new banks and buy or consolidate other financial institutions in California. He also
expanded beyond California into New York enabling him to create the Bank of America. This in turn was the background to
the creation in 1928 of the mammoth Transamerica Corporation. After a few shaky years of economic depression in the
1930s Giannini reinvigorated his banking empire. He played a critical role in loaning money for the purpose of operating
farms                                    and                                   movie                                making.

Giannini was more than a successful businessman; he was not interested in merely accumulating a personal fortune but
rather believed in using his wealth to improve society. He lived simply and unostentatiously maintaining faith in the free
enterprise system but one that accepted responsibilities. "Each of us is better for having to make our own money. God meant
us to work. To take from anyone the incentive to work is a questionable service." He also believed in sharing good fortune
with others by offering employees an opportunity in self-ownership through profit sharing. When he retired in 1945 he
established scholarships for employees and a foundation for medical research. He was a remarkable example of a child of
Italian immigrants who acknowledged this country as a land of opportunity and who transformed the banking industry\
